    Fingers crossed Funi actually provides replacement discs instead of just ninja repressing the discs for new releases.

          Some caps of Part 2 if anyone is interested. It is an improvement over Part 1 for sure though is still not that great looking.

                Re:ZERO Season 1 Part 1 Blu-ray Disc Replacement Program

                When Funimation released the home video for Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- Season 1 Part 1 in 2018, there were reports and complaints about the video quality and the banding artifacts on the Blu-ray discs. After investigating with the licensor and Crunchyroll, we confirmed that there was a discrepancy between the materials we were instructed to use for the release, versus the materials that were actually intended for home video usage in our market. We have been discussing with the licensor and alerted them of the issue. We now have the correct materials in hand.

                So now what? Because we want to make sure the fans of Re:ZERO have the best quality Blu-ray product for Season 1 Part 1, Funimation is offering a Blu-ray disc replacement program for Season 1 Part 1 home video release because of our mistake. We absolutely made sure to use the best available video materials for the upcoming Re:ZERO Season 1 Part 2 home video product, which releases February 5, 2019. No need to worry about that release!

                This program starts today and will be available until October 31, 2019 in United States and Canada. Funimation will begin mailing the new Part 1 discs in March 2019, and in the meantime, you can start the process of requesting for your new discs today.

                Here are the details on how to obtain your new mastered discs!

                Please submit an email to funimationstore@funimation.com with the information below:
                • Email subject must include: ReZERO.
                • Please request for a new set of Blu-ray discs for Re:Zero Season 1 Part 1.
                • Required information in the body of the email for redemption:
                  • Name:
                  • Mailing Address:
                  • Email Address:
                Our Customer Support will provide you a return authorization number that you will need to include when mailing your Blu-ray discs along with the mailing address. Once you have received your reference number and the mailing address, please send your existing Blu-ray discs for Part 1 as your proof of purchase (no paper receipt required).

                Funimation will mail out the new discs to customers that have followed the above process starting March 2019.

                If you are still interested in purchasing Re:ZERO Season 1 Part 1 Limited Edition or Standard Edition, please make sure to check your discs for any video quality issues after purchasing. If you experience any issues, please follow the process above to receive the new discs.

                Rest reassured that we are taking action to correct a mistake on this home video release. Also, we want to thank all of the fans for being who you are and letting us know when our product is not satisfactory. We strive to produce and deliver the best products for all anime fans, and we apologize for the inconvenience that this home video release has caused.

                  There it is! Finally, although I do understand that these things take time to work out with everyone involved. We didn't have to send our discs back for Code Geass, did we? It's a little annoying that I'll have to find appropriate packaging and go to the post office to pay to send these discs backs. But as long as the replacement process doesn't end up being anything close to the disaster of Code Geass, I'll be happy. Let's see if they actually get these out in March with no issues.

                    Glad to see they are finally offering replacements, and that the trade in program runs through the fall since I'm getting ready for a move cross country next month. I'll take my time getting settled in and see how they manage to make this seemingly simple process a complete disaster before putting in my replacement request.

                      So we just need to send the discs themselves, right? We DO NOT have to send the packaging?

                        Season 1 Part 2 screencaps

                        ep25 bitrate

                        Definitely improved over the part 1 release; banding is still visible but the artifacts are not as egregious as before.

                            Yes, they said to send just the discs.

                              It's great to see that Funimation is doing this as while it's one thing for the video quality BD to be inferior to the Japanese release that is pretty typical due to the practice of squeezing in as many episodes as they can, there's just no excuse for it being worse than the quality of the streams. I don't know what happened the first time around, but I'm definitely glad that they did something about this.

                                That bitrate is way higher than the episode I took one from lol
